This beer pours a nice golden color with a minimal white head, poor retention, and not a lot of lacing. The smell is honey, fruit, and pine. Mouthfeel is pretty nice with about the right amount of carbonation. Taste is well balanced, very sweet on the front, bitter on the finish. This is an easy beer to drink and would make a good starter beer for someone interested in expanding their palate beyond the AAL macros.

Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Tulip pint
Purchased: Single from Liquor Express, Huntsville AL

Pours an orange-yellow color and clear. The head is off-white and stands a couple of fingers high, showing both good lacing and retention.

Aromas are hop-forward, with citrus and pine smells. A bit of malt breadiness is evident as well.

Taste is fairly hoppy and bitter, with a low amount of malts peeking through.

Mouthfeel is moderately carbed on a medium body. Finishes dry and bitter.

Overall a descent pale ale, if not a bit one-dimensional.

12oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to vonschplieffen for this one.

A: Clear gold body beneath a finger of clumpy white head. Ok retention and lace. Not bad.

S: Interesting. More hoppy than malty, with some really distinctive fruity/vegetal notes: green apple (almost like a Lambic), green pepper, cotton candy, and citrus. I'm a fan.

T: Less bizarre here, but quite good - grapefruit and pine hoppiness leads things off, followed by some candied malt sweetness, and closed out by clean, dry bitterness. Good stuff.

M: A little light on body, with plenty of frothy, fizzy carbonation. Ok.

O: Really enjoyable APA. Plenty of flavor, some fascinating hop notes (presumably from the Simcoe), and terrific drinkability for its strength. Well worth trying.

Cheers!
